Ingredients

METHOD
  1. Boil a pot of water

  2. Prepare a bowl of ice bath

  3. Peel water chestnuts and cut into small cubes. In a mixing bowl, mix red food coloring with diced chestnuts until evenly colored. Use gloves!

  4. In a separate mixing bowl, coat colored water chestnuts with tapioca flour evenly and then get rid of excess flour in a colander or strainer

  5. Boil chestnuts in a pot until it floats and turns translucent. This will take approximately 2 minutes. Strain the chestnuts and immediately dump into bowl of ice water. Give it a stir so that it doesn’t stick

  6. Prepare coconut syrup by boiling coconut water, coconut milk, sugar, a pinch of salt and knotted pandan leaf. Once water is brought to a boil, immediately turn heat to low and leave to simmer for approximately 5 minutes

  7. Remove syrup from the heat and allow to cool completely before serving with ice shavings, water chestnuts and strips of jackfruit in a hollow coconut shell
